At 8 o’clock this morning, we meet tour guide and driver at the lobby of hotel and then start the tour with Silver Pagoda located in the Royal Palace Enclosure and the Royal Garden. The Silver Pagoda is so named because of its floor, which is made up of 5000 silver tiles, and each tile weights 1 kilogram. The treasures include a solid gold Buddha encrusted and weighing 90kilos and a small 17th century emerald Buddha. After that, we visit The National Museum, built in the Khmer style in the 1920’s, which has an extensive collection of Khmer art. The highlight of the exhibit is the artifacts from the pre-Angkor period to Angkor period. Before lunch we also visit the Wat Phnom, widely acknowledged as the site of the foundation of Phnom Penh, where we can enjoy views over the tree-lined avenues of Phnom Penh. We have lunch in the restaurant.

In the afternoon, we visit The Tuol Sleng Museum, also called Museum of Genocide where we can understand more about the most tragic part in Cambodia history. From 1975 until 1979 it was Khmer Rouge’s main torture and interrogation center, gaining the acronym ‘S-21’. From here the victims were taken out and executed in what is now known as the Killing Fields. Follow by that we visit the Victory monument and the Russian Market. Then we are back to hotel. Trip ends.
